All the sudden in the past week I have a huge influx of customers filling out support requests and saying they can’t find their purchase codes on ThemeForest like they used to be able to. Did ThemeForest change something, or is everyone just happening to be looking in the wrong place?

Sweet, I wasn’t aware that was against T&C here, that really answers all my questions and solves all my issues. Thanks a lot for the quick response!

I have had several occasions where a person has contacted me saying their friend or someone they knew purchased one of my themes and is no longer using it and has given them the license and now they’re asking for free support from me. I’m wondering what other authors do in this case? I know ThemeForest doesn’t require support, my question is just a general “what do you do?” in this case. I know I could just refuse to help him because I’m not afraid of him rating my item low (since he doesn’t own it), but I don’t know how I feel about that. So basically my two questions are:

1) What have you personally done in this situation?

2) Is it even legal to do this?

Thanks, chime in if you have been here before!

Gimp Source File (yes I was in a hurry and couldn’t get photoshop computer to boot )

I’m using this in my latest theme instructions so feel free to use it as well in yours. Or someone who can use photoshop please feel free to post back a better version that we can all use :)

Thanks a lot for sharing this, saved me a lot of time!

Hi IndustrialThemes, as Chris mentioned, you might want to take a quick look at our Knowledgebase article, referring to Property Release Examples:

  • Chrysler Building – allowed only in cityscapes including the Chrysler Building, as long as it is not the primary subject of the photo (New York, NY)

  • Empire State Building – allowed only in cityscapes including the Empire State Building, as long as it is not the primary subject of the photo (New York, NY)

  • Flatiron Building – allowed only in cityscapes including the Flatiron Building, as long as it is not the primary subject of the photo (New York, NY)

  • NY Stock Exchange – allowed only in cityscapes including the NY Stock Exchange, as long as it is not the primary subject of the photo (New York, NY)

Whoa, when did those specific examples get added?! Very handy, thanks for the further clarification, I appreciate it!

Thanks for the reply guys! I guess the only thing I was concerned about was if somehow I wasn’t allowed to provide a photo of a private building or landmark or something like that. Seems like I read something a long time ago about that – like even though the photo is yours it can’t contain certain things. So a shot of several buildings together (i.e. a cityscape) shouldn’t be an issue then?

Yeah I dont think cityscapes should be an issue, I know there are some federal buildings/architecture sites you cant take photos of for commercial use you may want to see if New York as any limitations.

I know for example some cities don’t allow you to take commercial photos in public parks without purchasing a license(or permit) from the city

Once again, thanks! You deserve that community superstar badge :)

I know this has been discussed to death, I know there is tons of verbiage for me to read in the licensing FAQs, and I know it depends on a lot of different factors. I just want to know if anyone can quickly give me a definitive answer to this question:

I snapped a picture of the skyline of NYC. There are no people in the photo, and it is a zoomed out photo of the whole city (with a lot of gaussian blur to boot). My question is, can I provide this photo as an available background in my theme download package to the end user?

Not trying to bypass PhotoDune and be a cheapskate (as I have made plenty of purchases over there for other areas of my theme), I just happen to really like this one photo I took and thought it would look good with my theme.

P.S. If I can provide it, what do I tell the theme reviewer? Do I just say “I took this picture” and that’s enough for copyright purposes? Thanks for any advice!

Let me get those TimTams! I think I only live about 3 hours from you (Indianapolis) and I would literally drive to Chicago for a pack of those. I finished mine the first day I received them.

My only complaint (besides the vegemite) is that I can’t get the rubber smell out of the little travel mug lid and it makes my coffee taste like rubber.

Congrats man!
